MCM Rules

Community Guidelines and Rules

Here at MC-Market, we've established a set of guidelines and rules for the community. These rules are designed to encourage a safe and friendly environment.

MC-Market (herein referred to as “MCM”) has established a set of guidelines and expectations for its members to adhere to in order to keep the community a friendly and safe environment. We call these guidelines and expectations the MC-Market Community Guidelines and Rules (the “Guidelines”). By registering as a member and creating an account or otherwise using the site in any way, you agree to the Guidelines, as well as the Terms and Conditions of Service (the “Terms”), which incorporates the Guidelines and is hereby incorporated by reference.
